It was real nice to pull up the news this morning and see the president taking responsibility for our nation’s stuttered rescue of stranded hurricane survivors in New Orleans.

“Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government,” Mr. Bush said. “And to the extent that the federal government didn’t fully do its job right, I take responsibility.

“I want to know what went right and what went wrong,” Mr. Bush added. “I want to know how to better cooperate with state and local government, to be able to answer that very question that you asked: Are we capable of dealing with a severe attack or another severe storm?”
